Real Sociedad cruise to victory over Cadiz

Real Sociedad defeated Cadiz on Thursday night to strengthen their European qualification chances.

La Real hold a three-point gap on seventh-placed Villarreal thanks to the home win.

Alexander Sorloth struck the opener for Real Sociedad on 18 minutes after a wonderful through ball from David Silva.

Silva, who had just penned a new contract, was outstanding on the night for La Real.

The hosts went further ahead after halftime, as Adnan Januzaj converted a penalty eight minutes after the break.

Then before fulltime, Cristian Portu was brought down with a rash tackle and he went onto convert the spotkick for the 3-0 win.
